In Florida, an atheist became incensed
over the preparation for Easter and Passover holidays and decided to
contact the local ACLU about the discrimination inflicted on atheists
by the constant celebrations afforded to Christians and Jews with all
their holidays
while the atheists had
no holiday to celebrate.

The ACLU jumped on the opportunity
to once again pick up the cause
of the godless and assigned
their sharpest attorneys to the case.

The case was brought before a wise judge
who after listening to the long, passionate presentation of the ACLU
lawyers, promptly banged his gavel and declared,
"Case dismissed!"

The lead ACLU lawyer immediately stood
and objected to the ruling and said,
"Your honor, how can you
possibly dismiss this case?
Surely the Christians have Christmas, Easter and many other observances.
And the Jews--why in addition to Passover
they have Yom Kippur and Hanukkah
...and yet my client and all other atheists
have no such holiday!"

The judge leaned forward in his chair
and simply said
"Obviously your client is too confused
to know about, or for that matter,
even celebrate the atheists' holiday!"

The ACLU lawyer pompously said
"We are aware of no such holiday for atheists, just when might that be,
your honor?"

The judge said "Well it comes every year on exactly the same date---
April 1st!"
